A really common thing in families is that sons want to emulate their parents. We can see it with two clear examples: the actors Martin Sheen and Charlie Sheen and also with the singers Julio Iglesias and Enrique Iglesias.

In World Series is not an exception: Pietro Fittipaldi’s grandfather is the enormously popular Emmerson (Emmo) Fittipaldi who obtained in the decade of 1970, 14 victories, 35 podiums, two championships in 1972 and 1974, and two sub-championships in 1973 and 1975.

In the 1980s and 1990s Fittipaldi won 22 victories, 65 podiums, the 1989 title and the 1993 and 1994 runners-up. Among his triumphs were two in the Indianapolis 500 of 1989 and 1993, with a second place in 1988 and a third in 1990.

It won’t be weird that Pietro is number one fan’s of his grandfather and he is following his steps to achieve what he did. This is something that we can see in Pietro’s Instagram account. We get you throw it:

When he wins a new trophy, the first person he shows it to is his grandfather. Here we can see both posing proudly with the MRF championship win trophy.

His grandfather taught him, from a very early age, to love the Motorsport’s culture

They love visiting museums together and getting knowledge about this amazing sport.

Pietro is a real lucky man: look at what gloves his grandfather gave him. An authentic relic of the history of motorsports.

The media do not let them escape when they are together. Being able to interview both is a luxury!

Pietro is the best fan of his grandad. Always close to him to portray the important moments.
